Corporations, government agencies and other institutions are under constant cyberattack, threatening personal privacy, corporate trade secrets, critical infrastructure, national security, and democratic processes. In response, what role does the law play? Starting with the question of what is cybersecurity, this course will explore the range of legal and policy questions posed when a cyberattack occurs and will consider how the law can be deployed to improve cybersecurity, including criminal law, data breach notification, civil liability and litigation, administrative agency regulation and enforcement, and national security law. It will examine how standards of care are being defined for cybersecurity. It will seek to offer insights on governance and risk management relevant to in-house counsel, private attorneys, and government officials. While the focus will be on U.S. law and policy, reference will be made to international norms.

All assigned readings will be available online.

NOTE: This course allows enrollment by remote or in-person students. All classes will be held in-person at Berkeley Law, but all Quarter 4 class sessions will be recorded and posted on bCourses to allow remote students to view recordings.
